Otto Nemenz International Adds the Monochrome Dragon to its Camera Arsenal


LR_oni_mono_dragonOtto Nemenz International announced that it now offer the RED EPIC-M DRAGON MONOCHROME camera. Otto Nemenz specializes in the rental and support of digital cinema cameras, lenses, and accessories to the Hollywood community.

“Our reputation is everything. Our clients know we don’t just throw our name behind the cool toy of the day,” said ONI marketing manager Fritz Heinzle. “This unique camera item is what our clients expect from us.”

The RED EPIC-M DRAGON MONOCHROME joins the Otto Nemenz fleet of EPICS that have now been converted to Dragons. Engineered exclusively for black-and-white cine and still photography, the camera is rated natively at ASA 2000 and uses its unique sensor pattern to achieve optimum 6K resolution and extended dynamic range (16.5+ stops). This dedicated black and white camera takes advantage of greater light sensitivity and tonal transfer in gradients that far exceed the monochromatic quality of a color image converted to black and white.

Like all RED cameras at Otto Nemenz, the Monochrome Dragon has been surrounded with the Otto Nemenz RED camera cage. “This custom modification makes the camera function like every other camera in our inventory. No special power or interface cables and no custom brackets or accessories are needed. So, there’s no mess to deal with to make the camera work,” said Heinzle.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
